Perimenopause is a natural stage in a woman’s life – it goes hand in hand with being the proud owner of ovaries and a uterus. Eventually, we all experience the hormonal shifts and menstrual cycle changes that go along with perimenopause and the ending of our reproductive years.
That’s why we designed Estrolene, an all-natural proprietary blend of herbs and vitamins that is designed to address the most common symptoms women experience during perimenopause. We know that you probably have a lot of questions about whether or not Estrolene can help, so we decided to address some of the most frequently asked questions we get about perimenopause and Estrolene.
Q: What are the early signs of perimenopause, and how can I tell if I have them?
A: One of the most common signs of perimenopause is what is known as vasomotor symptoms. You might know them as hot flashes and night sweats. For some women, these symptoms can start in their 30s although most perimenopausal women will begin to experience them around the age of 45.
Other early signs of perimenopause are difficulty sleeping, irritability or other changes in mood. Some women begin to feel more emotional and sensitive or experience mood swings without understanding why. The hormonal shifts that occur during perimenopause are usually related to these kinds of symptoms. Some women experience thinning of hair or increased dryness of the skin.
Of course, the biggest telltale sign of perimenopause is a change in your regular menstrual cycle. You may notice that your periods become longer or shorter, or that your cycle length begins to change. Some women also begin to experience a heavier or lighter menstrual flow than usual. These changes can begin up to 10 years before the onset of menopause, so if you are between the ages of 40 and 58 and experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be perimenopausal. It’s always best to check with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
Q: What types of symptoms is Estrolene designed to address?
A: Estrolene for Perimenopause Support is designed to target a variety of the common signs and symptoms of perimenopause. That’s why we included a proprietary blend of all-natural herbs and vitamins that address many of the most commonly reported complaints by perimenopausal women.
Vitamins D, E, and calcium are included to help support healthy bones and to prevent osteoporosis and bone loss associated with perimenopause. Research shows that Vitamin D may also be useful in helping to alleviate mood symptoms, fatigue, and other perimenopausal symptoms like vaginal dryness.
The herbal blend we created for Estrolene includes traditional and time-tested herbs like magnolia bark extract, red clover isoflavones, and chaste tree berry to address symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, and anxiety, as well as problems with sleep. Black cohosh root has been shown to be more effective in reducing hot flashes than any other natural treatment. Pueraria mirifica has been used to promote longevity and alleviate perimenopausal symptoms since at least the 13th century! It addresses vasomotor symptoms and issues with vaginal dryness and pain during intercourse.
As you can see, we designed this formula with the intention of addressing as many of the most common perimenopausal complaints as possible! We believe our product is one of the most comprehensive on the market for women with perimenopausal symptoms.
Q: Who will benefit most from supplementing with Estrolene?
A: Women who are experiencing perimenopausal symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, low libido, fatigue, or vaginal dryness should expect to notice a big change after taking Estrolene! But Estrolene is not only for women struggling with perimenopausal symptoms. Any woman of perimenopausal age can use Estrolene to help prevent uncomfortable symptoms associated with the hormonal shifts during perimenopause. Our formula also helps to support healthy bones and encourage a strong immune system, so it can be used at any stage of perimenopause or beyond to support health and prevent symptoms from occurring.
Q: What are the active ingredients in Estrolene, and what are they good for?
A: Our herbal blend includes red clover isoflavones, an extract from the red clover plant. These phytoestrogens help combat the hot flashes and night sweats that often accompany perimenopausal hormonal changes.
Magnolia bark extract has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and also helps to reduce vasomotor symptoms. In addition, it has been shown to alleviate anxiety and irritability, sleep issues, vaginal dryness and loss of libido. It’s quite a powerful herb!
Black cohosh root is a native North American herb that addresses a wide range of perimenopausal symptoms from hot flashes to sleep problems. It is one of the most effective herbs out there for reducing hot flashes and night sweats!
Chaste tree berry, also known as Vitex, is a Mediterranean plant traditionally used to address a wide range of fertility and women’s health-related complaints. Studies have shown that it can reduce hot flashes and alleviate sleep-related issues.
Pueraria mirifica root also addresses hot flashes and night sweats, and like magnolia bark extract, it can also help with a number of other complaints including vaginal dryness and pain with sex due to decreased fluids and thinning of the vaginal tissue.
Our nutraceutical blend includes Vitamins D, E, and calcium. All are important nutrients in supporting bone health and density and helping to prevent the onset of osteoporosis.
Q: When should I start taking Estrolene, and how long should I take it for?
A: We recommend Estrolene for any woman of perimenopausal age or with perimenopausal symptoms. For most women, the hormonal shifts associated with perimenopause begin in the 40s, but some women experience them earlier or later. If you are experiencing hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, low libido, vaginal dryness, trouble sleeping, poor concentration, or any of the other symptoms associated with perimenopause, we think Estrolene is the right formula for you! We designed Estrolene to be used at any stage of perimenopause and to support you into menopause. If you are benefiting from supplementation with Estrolene, you can continue to take it during perimenopause to support hormonal balancing and to protect your bone and immune health as you transition into menopause.
Always check with your doctor if you have questions or concerns about your symptoms or medications.
Q: When should I take Estrolene? Is it better to take with food or without?
Q: Is Estrolene safe to take with my other medications and supplements?
A: The herbs and nutrients in Estrolene are all natural and safe, but we always recommend checking with your doctor if you are taking prescription medication. A natural health care provider can help determine the best herbal and supplement regimen for you.
Q: What should I notice after taking Estrolene?
A: We expect that you will notice a decrease in perimenopausal symptoms after taking Estrolene for a period of time. Our customers report less hot flashes and night sweats within a few weeks of taking Estrolene, but everyone is different. The changes you experience may be more gradual or less dramatic.
You may also notice an improvement in energy and concentration, less mood-related symptoms, and better sleep overall. For perimenopausal women who experience low libido or issues with vaginal dryness, you may experience an improvement in these symptoms.
Estrolene’s proprietary blend is also designed to support bone and immune system health. Over the long term, Estrolene may help to prevent the onset of osteoporosis or perimenopausal-related bone loss.
Q: Are there any lifestyle recommendations that will help me receive the most benefit from taking Estrolene?
A: Lifestyle is always an important aspect of maintaining health. Research shows that women who exercise and eat a nutritious diet to maintain a healthy weight during perimenopause experience less hot flashes and night sweats.
Food can be medicine, too, and women who consume foods high in calcium, vitamin D, and phytoestrogens during perimenopause help to protect their bodies against the effects of aging and the hormonal shifts that occur during this time in their life. Organic and low-fat dairy products like yogurt and cheese, nuts and seeds, and fish high in Omega-3 fatty acids like salmon and sardines help to provide natural sources of vitamin D and calcium. Soy products like tempeh as well as flax seeds, oats, barley, and sesame seeds contain the estrogen-like compounds known as phytoestrogens. Consuming these foods can help reduce vasomotor symptoms during perimenopause.
It’s also important to lower inflammation and manage stress. Women who smoke or consume too much sugar or alcohol will typically experience more uncomfortable symptoms during perimenopause. We also know from research that stress can increase perimenopausal symptoms while practices like yoga and mindfulness can reduce symptoms, especially those related to mood like anxiety and depression.
We believe Estrolene is one of the best products out there to address perimenopausal symptoms. Still, natural supplements usually achieve the best results when combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle.
